they stand to make huge profits from not letting you transfer / re download what you paid for

i hope if you carry over your psn name so you can re download what you OWN ALREADY to ps4

It's Sony, Who knows...I think I read something the other damn to re-download stuff from your Wii to Wii-U you had to pay a fee...I'm guessing Sony would make people do the same.

If they want digital distribution to be a success, they'll have to let you bring the content over. Otherwise, the people who currently support it would probably flip to physical media supporters. If it can't transfer, it essentially has an expiry date.

You can download wii virtual console games you bought to the wii vc on wii U, but if you want to download the same game to the Wii U VC its like 50 cents or 1.50 or something..

You get to the Wii VC on Wii U by going to special Wii menu that like emulates the Wii OS..

There is a seperate Wii U VC coming and games will have new features which i guess justifies the prices... i.e. you will be able to play them on the gampad if they are on the Wii U VC for example

one of the few things that would prevent me from getting a ps4, i've spent a lot of money on psn, and if that stuff doesn't carry over to ps4, or if they don't at least keep up the psn for ps3 i would be done. sony needs to be really careful what they do with ps4/psn, because i'm pretty sure i'm not alone in this.

I doubt it. If Sony was really going to do this they would've already did it with the Vita.

IF, and I stress that word, IF the PS4 will be capable of even playing PS3 games and what not, I can see them charging some fee to transfer it or having some connection thing between the PS3 and 4 to do so.

But I seriously wouldn't count on it people, or expect it. You do not really own anything digital based, you have a license to use said software and that's pretty much it. That's kind of why people continue to decry it, they realize and see the problems with it that many of you just want to ignore.

It'll certainly be hilarious when the thing is reported to not play either PS1 or PS2 games though, which I know is going to happen.
